Re: Games, anyone?
"that leaves the door open to start getting rid of windows desktops."
That's what we did. Now we run Windows on Citrix both on premises and in Azure. Just a Dell Wyse terminal on each desk and true free seating, and easy access to multiple desktops per user.
The high end Wyse boxes still run Windows of course, but you dont see it. If you dont need that level of enterprise functionality, features and security then the low end ones run some form of Linux.
